I have driven up in the glen there to see that famous Ben Wiskin view, and I told myself I will walk up that edge some time. Is there really no possibility of requesting permission from the aforementioned "Bull". I'm always appalled when someone "owns" a special mountain, and can block all access. I certainly understand one not wanting a place trashed however. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/425/comment/2216/
